Raleigh, North Carolina 



Foreword 



This is your 1955 Stage Coach for you to keep always. 
It is like an old-fashioned music box, whenever you open it, 
there will echo and re-echo in your ears and hearts the music 
of St. Mary's: the Chapel services . . . the 7:30 breakfast 
bell . . . orchestras at dances . . . one-hour dates in the after- 
noons . . . football games . . . studies . . . friends at school 
. . . dates . . . the voices of your teachers . . . the companionship 
of your friends . . . and the Spirit of St. Mary's. 

And the priceless music box will refocus in your minds 
hundreds of happy hours spent in the sunshine, in the rain, 
under the moon, and under the stars at St. Mary's. 



Dedication 




"So nigh is grandeur to our dust, 

So near is God to man. 
When duty whispers low, 'Thou must!' 

The youth replies, 'I can'." 

She not only serves us students by constantly encouraging' us, but also bv 
setting an example that each of us would be proud to follow. Her work during 
orientation was important in getting us started out on the right foot in our new 
college life. Throughout the year, her personal interest in each of us has endeared 
her to us. We take great pleasure in dedicating the 19-55 Stage Coach to

To the Students 

St. Mary's Junior College 

Raleigh, North Carolina 



Dear St. Mary's Girls: 

Your editor, Pat McQueen, has graciously invited 
me to write, you a letter to be put into the 1955 edition of 
the STAGE COACH. I am happy to extend to you my affection- 
ate greetings. 

Each year of my association with the student body 
of our college has left a lasting impression on my memory. 
I am very proud of St. Mary's and her accomplishments. This 
pride stems largely from the successes you girls achieve. 
By your diligence you gain a sound education and prepare your- 
selves for the good life. By your influence on each other you 
become mature, thoughtful people. And by your recreation you 
develop into charming individuals with all the graces that 
society admires. If by doing these things you develop sound 
character traits, we of the faculty and administration will 
feel that our efforts have been rewarded. 

With kind personal regards I am, 

Sincerely yours,

RICHARD G. STONE 

President 

A.B., Western Maryland College; Ph.D., The Johns Hopkins Qniversity; L.H.D., 
Western .Maryland College. St. Mary's 1 94fj — . 

In the course of our lives at St. Mary's, we have come to look upon Dr. Stone, with 
his friendly smile and genial personality, as a permanent part of our school. In his 
nine years as president of St. Mary's, he has become so much a part of the school that 
it is scarcely possible for us to think of him apart from St. Mary's, or St. Mary's 
apart from Dr. Stone.

SCHOOL HYMN 

We build our School on Thee, Lord: 
To Thee we bring our common need; 
The loving heart, the helpful word, 
The tender thought, the kindly deed. 

We work together in Thy sight. 
We live together in Thy love; 
Guide Thou our falt'ring steps aright, 
And lift our thoughs to heaven above. 

Hold Thou each hand to keep it just, 
Touch Thou our lips and make them pur,e; 
If Thou art with us, Lord, we must 
Be faithful friends and comrades sure. 

We change, but Thou art still the same, 
The same good Master, Teacher, Friend; 
We change; but Lord, we bear Thy Name, 
To journey with it to the end. AMEN.

MARTHA DABNEY JONES 

Dean 

"Stands St. Mary's true and noble. . . ." 

True and noble, our Dean gives devo- 
tion to the understanding and guidance 
of St. Mary's girls, and by the example 
of her high ideals inspires us to carry 
with us always the Spirit of St. Mary's. 
All of the students are quite sad that 
Miss Jones will no longer he our Dean 
after this year, hut our love and best 
wishes follow her to Stuart Hall, hoping 
that her constructive influence will live 
there as it will always live at St. Mary's. 





ISRAEL HARDING HUGHES 
Chaplain 

"Well ice love the little chapel. . . ." 

Through the comfort and guidance 
of our beloved chaplain, we are led 
through the Christian life so cherished 
at St. Mary's. Mr. Hughes will long 
be remembered by each of us, for he 
is our companion in joy or sorrow dur- 
ing all of our days here.

Senior Song 



Farewell to thee, dear S.M.C. 
We'll go our separate ways. 
But we'll be true to friends we knev 
And happy college days. 



I.o now we pray that from this day 

Our future may be bright 

With deeds we've done, witli work and fun 

For our dear blue and white. 



We are at last a senior class. 
Our caps and gowns display 
Tile fact that we soon gone will be 
On graduation day. 



Our teams and games, our classmates' names 

We'll ever keep alive 

Forever gone, yet we'll live on 

Dear Class of '55 !

Class Prophecy 



Raleigh. X. C. 
June 30, 1976 

Chairman Jane Cutlar Best of the House S.M.A.B.I. 
(St. Mary's Alumnae Bureau of Investigations) Com- 
mittee has released the names and facts concerning the 
persons involved in the committee's recent investigation 
of the St. Mary's class of '55. 

It was a hot. sultry June day when Chairman Best 
sent her investigators Reese, Mardre. Walters. Divine 
and Spivev out with instructions: "Get the facts, girls, 
nothing hut the facts." However, they were unable to 
turn up any susj^icious hints. 

Anne Wallace and Jo-Anne Knott were in the Pokie. 
They had been arrested by the S.P.C.T. (Society for 
Prevention of Cruelty to Teachers). The sentence was 
handed down by the first feminine Supreme Court Judge 
in Virginia. Anne Harmon Jones. Also on the court's 
docket was a civil case between Nancy Jones and the 
State of Virginia, involving Nancy's island which had 
been lost. According to her lawyer, Toni Briggs. the 
island was dislodged by a ship's passing too close to it. 
The ship was probably the African liner carrying Mary 
Lee Breece who was embarking for Tibet and Madagas- 
car, the only two places in the world she hadn't visited. 

Another traveler is Corinne Bethune who has a 
six-months leave of absence from the Washington Zoo in 
order to go on a safari in Africa in search of a rare 
species of soldier ants. 

Many members of the class were found to be involved 
in politics and hence had already been well-investigated. 
These include Lee Koldsaat who accepted the position of 
U. S. Postmistress to keep busy while Claude traveled. 
Shirley Dees and "Sissy" Dawson were serving the 
Democratic Party as National Committee Women. Judy 
Rice, campaign secretary, said that Patsy Moore was 
coining along quite well in the 1976 Presidential race. 

Another Mild that had claimed many class members 
was the theatre. Overseas. Mena Way Marsh was doing 
modern dance in Germany. Kathy Whitfield and Blanny 
Robertson were there, too. as comediennes with a group 
of the nation's leading players entertaining American 
servicemen abroad. Hire in the states. Dewey Owens 
was singing at the Met. Betty Martin at last had a 
female role in a New York play, and Bitty Dent was 
playing in a show that is attracting theatre-goers 
from all over the world. Claudia Peeler was the featured 
entertainer at Bopland at Moorehead. run by Mary 
Ann Braswell. Mary Wright Parker, and Carolyn 
Scyffert. Ann Norman was also in the entertainment 
world. She had taken over for Ann Southern as Susie 
McNamara in "Private Secretary." Frances Setze was 
Donald O'Connor's dancing partner. 

Quite a number of the girls were found giving able 
assistance to their husbands. Marty Whedbee. now 
Lady Marty, was helping her husband, a French noble- 
man she met while touring Europe, to learn "American" 
English. Carolyn Thompson was busy helping Jimmy 
care for the ailing pups of Marie Tyler, French 
poodle fancier. Margery Lindeman was doing very well 
as the wife of Virginia Beach's new mayor. Ann Fullton 
was involved in preparations for a big party at the 
fabulous long Island Country Club managed by her and 
her husband. Martha Good was skillfullv holding mi to 



unco-operative Dennis the Menace, and her pediatrician 
husband. Sugar Dudley, now an admiral's wife, is help- 
ing him start a retreat for homesick middies at Annapolis. 
Jeanne Ogburn was teaching cheerleading at the Uni- 
versity of Colorado, while her ex-roommate, Ann Gillett, 
served as President of the National Women's Athletic 
Association. 

While the investigators were in Marshal Field's in 
Chicago, seeking an interview with chief personnel 
director Jerry Dixon, they met Ann Barber buying 
clothes for her six little red-heads. They also heard that 
Kitty Campen was there outfitting her daughter, who. 
following in her mother's footsteps, is entering the Junior 
Miss America contest. We then saw several pictures of 
Penn Anthony who was in Oslo modeling sweaters for 
some Norwegian sweater manufacturer. 

On the way to Florida to interview Megan Goodwin, 
now living the "Life of Riley" at Daytona Beach, the 
investigators passed several interesting schools. Anne 
Marie Miller was just leaving her junior Deke's at 
Grace Bonev's beautiful modern nursery school. Margot 
Hammond and Mary Ruth Mitchell had opened a school 
for Yankees who have come South wanting a Southern 
accent. Ann Bynum was teaching a class at St. Mary's on 
how to stop biting fingernails. 

While the investigators were so far south, they 
decided to spend a week resting on Mary Stieber's 
fabulous coffee plantation in South America. 

Returning to North Carolina, to the University at 
Chapel Hill, they were told by Bobby Love, house 
mother at the K.A. House there, that Libbie and her 
family were coming home from Paducah for a visit during 
the summer. Lane Welsh was also there organizing a 
group to take a tour of Europe. Ann Marie Molloy 
regretted that she would not be able to accompany them. 
Ann Marie, now the nation's foremost mathematician, 
was to teach a course in higher math during the summer 
term. While they were in Chapel Hill, the investigators 
visited Alice Wahinann who was hospitalized there with 
encephalitis. Fortunately Jo Sinithwick. resident phy- 
sician, believes that she can be cured with a new cure-all 
patented by Patsy Haughton which is guaranteed to be 
99.99 per cent pure — pure something — no one knows just 
what ! 

A short visit to their old Alma Mater. S.M.J.C. 
revealed Ann Keffer. who was filling the new position 
of chiropractor there for the benefit of the hockey 
and basketball teams. 

In Raleigh, the investigators attended the Governor's 
Inaugural Ball. They saw Mrs. "Shot" Winslow who was 
still trying to convince the public that her real name 
is Ann. Also, they saw Sue Brock Jones who, it is said, 
hasn't raised her voice at anyone yet. According to word 
at the Ball. Ann Stronach was still holding her position 
as Las Vegas' favorite brunettte. and Jane Wrike, Vir- 
ginia Lilly, and Ann Nimoeks have netted their fourth 
million manufacturing panic buttons. Pat McQueen was 
not .at the Ball, for she was still trying to get Dottie 
Foster and Mary Elise Bridger to turn in the 1955 
class prophecy. 

In concluding, the reporters wish to acknowledge the 
assistance given them by Mary Burgwyn, the nation's 
leading family tree tracer and Aubrey Campbell, who 
tours for the Virginia Chamber of Commerce.
